I want to create a restore disk system on another HDD without having to back up the entire computer?

I have Windows XP Professional, and I do a back up of all the windows files that I need to run windows (I hope) on a second hard drive. I want to create a file recovery from windows on this drive, but when I go in the options backup, I have to pick up the entire computer in order to get this recovery file created. But I don't want to back up all my personal files and programs because that would take in charge the secondary hard drive together.  How to create this recovery file without saving the entire hard drive? Thank you.

If you do any type of backup - only circuit, dat, or all - on a second internal bank or a second partition, you are just kidding yourself. It is the lowest form of backup doesn't exist, and is barely better than no backup at all. He let losses likely to be simultaneous to the original and backup for many common dangers: serious power, near the lightning seeds, failures of hard disk (if it's a second partition), virus attacks, even the theft of the laptop.

In my view, secure backup must be on a media removable and not stored in the computer. For backup really secure (necessary, for example, if your company depends on your data), you should have several generations of backup, and at least one of these generations should be stored off-site.
